A Celebration of James Baldwin at National Gallery of Art September 11, 2014

National Gallery of Art: James Baldwin in 1965, drinking tea from a samovar in Istanbul, Turkey. His home for a total of seven years, Istanbul was a refuge from Western racism—and the place where he finished Another Country, Blues for Mister Charlie, and Tell Me How Long the Train's Been Gone.
